From the lush coffee farms and plantations of South America, to the quaint and cozy coffee shops of Europe, there's always something new and exciting to discover when it comes to coffee. I am excited to share with you my personal journey and experiences of visiting some of the best coffee farms, plantations, and shops around the world.


I hope that this blog will inspire you to take your own coffee journey and

the beauty and diversity of the world of coffee.


South America


Colombia


My first stop on my coffee journey was Colombia, a country known for producing some of the finest coffee beans in the world. I had the opportunity to visit several coffee farms and plantations in the region, and was blown away by the dedication and passion of the farmers and growers.


One of the highlights of my trip was visiting a farm that specializes in growing premium Colombian coffee beans, using traditional methods passed down from generation to generation. The beans are hand-picked and sun-dried, resulting in a rich and smooth taste that's truly one of a kind.





One of the farms I had the pleasure of visiting was Hacienda La Esmeralda, located in the Quindio region of Colombia. This farm is known for producing some of the most sought-after coffee beans in the world, thanks to its unique and complex flavor profile.


They grow several varieties of coffee, including the famous Geisha variety, known for its fruity and floral notes. A visit to Hacienda La Esmeralda is a must for any coffee lover, as you'll have the opportunity to see the coffee-making process in action, and of course, taste some of the best coffee you'll ever have.


Another farm I visited was Finca La Pradera, located in the Caldas region of Colombia. This farm is known for its sustainable and eco-friendly practices, and they grow several varieties of coffee, including the Caturra, Colombia and Castillo varieties.


I had the opportunity to participate in a traditional coffee-picking process, where I learned the importance of only picking the ripe cherries and how that affects the final taste of the coffee. The farm also has a small coffee shop on site where you can taste the different varieties they produce and purchase some of the beans to take home with you.


If you're planning a trip to Colombia, I highly recommend visiting one of the coffee farms or plantations in the region. Not only will you get to learn about the history and culture of coffee in the country, but you'll also have the opportunity to taste some of the best coffee beans in the world. And if you're lucky, you might even get to participate in the coffee-making process and learn how to brew the perfect cup of coffee.


Europe


Next, I traveled to Europe, where I discovered a whole new world of coffee culture. From the charming coffee shops of Paris, to the trendy cafes of Berlin, I was impressed by the variety and creativity of the coffee scene in Europe.


One of my favorite coffee experiences was visiting a small coffee shop in Rome, where the owner roasts his own beans and uses traditional methods to brew the perfect cup of coffee. It was a truly authentic and memorable experience.


Paris


In Paris, I had the pleasure of visiting Cafe Lomi, a small and cozy coffee shop located in the trendy Marais district. The owner, a third-generation coffee roaster, takes great pride in sourcing and roasting the best beans from around the world, and it shows in the quality of the coffee they serve. They also offer a variety of brewing methods, so you can try your coffee in different ways. I also enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere and the friendly staff.


Berlin


In Berlin, I visited The Barn, a specialty coffee roastery and cafe located in the trendy Neukölln neighborhood. The Barn is known for its commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing of beans, and their focus on quality and taste. They have a wide selection of single origin beans, and they offer a variety of brewing methods including pour-over, aeropress, and syphon. I also loved their minimalistic and industrial decor, and the friendly and knowledgeable staff.


If you're planning a trip to Europe, I highly recommend visiting some of the coffee shops and cafes in the region. Not only will you get to sample some delicious coffee, but you'll also have the opportunity to experience the local culture and meet some interesting people. And who knows, you might even discover your new favorite coffee shop!


Australia



Another great place to visit if you're a coffee lover is Melbourne, Australia. Melbourne is known for its vibrant coffee scene, and it's home to some of the best coffee shops and roasters in the world. I had the pleasure of visiting several coffee shops during my trip, and I was impressed by the quality of the coffee and the creativity of the baristas.


Melbourne


One of my favorite coffee shops in Melbourne was Market Lane Coffee, located in the heart of the city. Market Lane is known for its commitment to quality and sustainability, and they source their beans directly from farmers and cooperatives around the world. I also loved their cozy and rustic decor, and the friendly staff.


Another great coffee shop I visited was Brother Baba Budan, located in the trendy CBD area. This coffee shop is known for its unique and experimental approach to coffee, and they offer a variety of unique and delicious blends. I also enjoyed the cozy and relaxed atmosphere, and the friendly and knowledgeable staff.
